Absurda, Industrial Entertainment and First Look Studios present My Son, My Son What Have Ye Done, the first collaboration between legendary filmmakers David Lynch and Werner Herzog. Academy Award Nominees Michael Shannon, Chloë Sevigny, and Willem Dafoe headline this psychological thriller, written and directed by Herzog, produced by Lynch, and featuring Grace Zabriskie, Udo Kier and Brad Dourif.

My Son, My Son What Have Ye Done will be available on DVD September 14th. The extras include 5.1 Dolby sound, commentaries by Werner Herzog, writer Herb Golder and producer Eric Bassett; interviews with Golder and Herzog; plus behind-the-scenes footage. The bonuses include Plastic Bag, a short film by director Ramin Bahrani (Goodbye Solo) that traces the epic, existential journey of a plastic bag, voiced by Herzog.

My Son, My Son What Have Ye Done is loosely based on the mysterious true crime story of a young stage actor who, obsessed with a Greek tragedy he’s rehearsing, slays his own mother with a sword. Shannon stars a man terribly at odds with the world around him. His story emerges in a series of flashbacks that takes viewers on a journey that includes the Peruvian wilds, an ostrich farm, a Mexican border town and a quiet San Diego neighborhood where the drama unfolds.
